Located in Zapopan, Mexico, Oval House was built in accordance with strict, traditionalist aesthetic restrictions that are in place for houses in a gated residential community. Designed by firm Elias Rizo Arquitectos, a desire for privacy and space efficiency were the two driving concerns for the project. Comprising mostly concrete, wood and stone materials, the box-like structure features a central internal courtyard on the top floor. Bedrooms and a family living space are also on the upper level, while kitchen, dining and entertaining areas are located on the ground floor, which opens up to reveal a backyard and concrete deck in the rear.
